Photo: A Clean, Well Lit Place To Lose Your Head-

It makes those early dawn beheadings so much more pleasant.

Pardon the quick and dirty cloning in the lower left corner. It's all about the lamp post, right?

2004 - Tower of London

HMS Belfast, that is.

On a warm, clear day in May 2004 we visited the permanently docked HMS Belfast in London. I've always liked this view.

Processed using only #Lightroom5  and exported directly as a JPEG.

Well, that was the date!

The changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace on July 4th, 2005. I've now seen the changing of the guards twice, and probably don't need to see it again, but if you've never seen it, it's worth braving the crowds just once. No doubt, if I go to London with someone who hasn't been there before, I'll do it again, though.

Just to be thorough, this photo was a jpeg from a cheap camera with a plastic lens . . . and all the attendant problems of in-camera sharpening, etc. processing was done mainly in LightroomCC, but there was a bit of Photoshop, as I recall.

No! Really! This was July 6th, 2005!

On all of my trips to England, never have I gone totally without rain. No surprise there, eh? Interestingly, if you look up statistics, there is more rain on average in June and July than there is in April and May. Be that as it may, this view across the lake/moat at Leeds Castle has plenty going for it in the greenery and blooming flowers.

What's not going for the photo, much, is the crummy camera I had at the time. The exposure was dark, grainy and full of chroma noise . . . but between Photoshop and a lot of head banging on filters, this is what we have. It can't be considered a portfolio piece, but it is a fond reminder of a nice time.
